about the artist
Contemporary abstract artist Jenna Webb specializes in vibrant, bold works infused with her positive spirit and energy. Her intuitive alcohol ink paintings reflect the beauty she sees and the light she wants you to feel. Her magical compositions mesmerize and soothe while her vibrant colors instantly elevate. Metallic gold is Jenna’s signature way of adding positivity and optimism to your day.
Intuition has guided Jenna’s art as well as her bold life choices. Through a soul searching journey kick started by heartbreak, Jenna discovered her passion for art as an adult. She gained experience in several mediums but fell madly in love with alcohol ink painting. There was an innate, magical connection between her and the inks. An obsessive connection was born and the creative binges began. After a decade of business management work Jenna made the brave career transition to become a full-time artist in 2017.
Jenna approaches painting much like she does life: intuitive, fearless and fun. Her creative process is an “intuitive freefall” as she relinquishes control and trusts the callings of her soul. She liberally pours rubbing alcohol then paints “whatever comes up” as she plays and flows. Painting is a meditative escape from her struggles with chronic migraines. Creating beauty through her chronic pain is just one way Jenna turns a negative into a positive. Jenna is a bonafide Sagittarius so it is no wonder she radiates positivity. Speaking of her zodiac sign, Jenna craves adventure and dreams of the next place she will go wearing only her bikini, camera and sunglasses. She cannot live without music, self expression, love, laughter and her dogs. Jenna creates from her studio in Raleigh, NC, which she shares with Gus and Lola, her Boston Terrier and French Bulldog.
I found myself in costa rica
In the midst of a soul-searching journey, I found myself on a yoga retreat in Costa Rica. I was in the middle of a gorgeous waterfall hike when I finally released a heavy load of bullshit I was carrying around. Through a tearful face and some anxious yelling that may have perplexed a few howler monkeys, I let. it. all. out. because I knew it was the last time I was going to feel that pain. I sent those negative feelings down the Costa Rican river for the jungle to wash away forever. As I turned to take a step toward the waterfall, I already felt much lighter. I was ready to move forward in my purpose-filled life.
release what does not serve you. literally...even if it's your bikini top!
When you finally let go of what is no longer serving a purpose in your life, you clear up precious real estate in your mind to open yourself up to what the universe has in store for you. That's when the REAL magic happens! Inspiring people through art is my life’s purpose. Costa Rica was the catalyst.
My mission is to capture the world's beauty and inspire self-love
I believe we are happiest when we are true to ourselves, love ourselves, and especially when we are bold and express ourselves. It lights me on FIRE to bring beauty and inspiration to your space. I cannot wait to help you create a space that reflects your soul!
